Both of those charcters were stupid and annoying.Cringe-inducing! Watching them both made me wanna puke.I get it they're trying to sell toys to kids with them.But for the love of god..Which one was worse and why?Or do you have another annoying sidekick to add to this mix?

Jar Jar hands down. Spritle & Chim Chim were like the animation counterparts so can't really complain. Jar Jar absolutely ruined the film along with Jake Lloyd. Phantom Menace and and the other 2 films could have been so much better...

I'll tell ya Oh,I liked Chim-Chim and I get that Sprittle is mischevious and a little fresh( just like the T.V. show).But this was different for me.The only part that I felt captured them was the stowaway in the trunk bit.Between Sprittle's mugging,cursing and fighting,he reminded me of a kid that's been told he's cute too many times.Even though he's not.That little actor chewed up the scenery in a way that was totally distracting,and took me right out of the movie.The monkey however I loved.Especially at the end over the credits,where he was going crazy.Go Chim-Chim Go!!

I think Sprittle just rubbed you the wrong way. That kind of character has to borderline obnoxious to be funny, just like Chowder in Monster House, and this one went too far for you.

Now, Jar Jar on the other hand, that is just a CRAP character that *only* appeals to kids that aren't old enough to speak in complete sentences. Just like Barney.

Well T-Dawg he definitely rubbed me the wrong way.Hence the start of this thread.But it was a combination of Sprittle's mugging,wisecracking,scene-ruining& injecting himself into conversations that I hated.I love the cartoon Sprittle(don't get me wrong)but that kid made me wanna smack him the same way I wanted to smack Jake Lloyd,Jar-Jar&Hayden Christensen.They helped ruin movies I went in excited about.

Sprittle was as annoying as anyone's little brother would be, but Jar Jar, uggghhh. I would stab myself. Jar jar's way more annoying. At least Sprittle speaks english.

I'll take Sprittle over Sparky any time. Or Jar Jar.

Jar Jar is easily way more annoying than Sprittle could ever be.

I'm not really sure, but Sprittle almost ruined this movie for me. The actor played him well, but he is terribly annoying, as was the stupid monkey. All of the nonsense, extremely campy, vomit inducing scenes involving him were pointless to the movie. About 15-20 minutes could've been removed, and this movie could've excellent. Instead, it's only ok because of how annoying he is.
I feel he was way overdone, far more than the animated series version.
